Making Mom Feel Special!

Apr 20, 2015 12:43:12 PM

If you are like most people Mother's Day rolls around and although we know and love our mother's we are stumped on what to get her.  Another gift card for a massage, that cute cardigan at the mall, done those already, right?  Encourage your mom to support local businesses and pop over to a local store and register, now you say, what? Register?  That is for brides!  Nope anyone can register and every mom should!  She gets to pick out what she wants, maybe a new fresh set of dinnerware, or the wine glasses she had her eye on.  As we know, there are always those items you would like to have but don't want to buy for yourself!

Another idea for mom, throw her a fabulous brunch!  Here are some ideas on how to do it and how you can incorporate Arte Italica pieces that you can "Gift" to her after!

Our Tuscan 3-tiered Stand will be perfect for your brunch and later used for cupcakes for all those birthday parties!  The Vintage Pitcher is also stunning filled with flowers!

Cherubino makes a perfect piece to serve on, then later, use them on a nightstand as a ring holder or in the bathroom for soap.

Anna Glassware as well as Verona can be so versitile.  We only have a few Tuscan Pitchers remaining in this style, get one now!

Our Medici Collection is one of our favorites and best selling.  Any piece in the collection is a star!

Our Scavo Chargers and Puccini Fruit bring color and interest to the table.

We are retiring the Splendore Collection so grab a piece from this spectatular collection before its gone!

Happy Mother's Day!

Get the Look!

Apr 9, 2015 9:43:34 AM

Recently our Vetro Silver collection was selected to be apart of a photo-shoot, styled by Amore Events by Cody and photographed by Reverie Supply.  This elegant and beautiful photo-shoot captured a stunning bride, and her dreamlike wedding, focusing on shades of blackberry.  Read all about it on the blog, Elizabeth Anne Designs, or at Weddings Unveiled.  You can also pick up a copy of Weddings Unveiled Magazine and see the feature in their Spring 2015 issue.

Shop this look!

You too can have this same look for your next dinner party!  Let us show you how.

Start with our Vetro Silver Chargers and Glassware

Use a vintage tureen or a piece like our Vintage Handled Bowl as a centerpiece for flowers.  You can also mimic this look by tieing ribbon to the chairs, like this ribbon from Ballard Design, or use the ribbon as napkin rings.

Find a sweet cherub for your table like this one from Frontgate

Last but not least, add some candlelight to create ambiance and to set the mood by using candelabras or candlesticks like our Cero.

Celebrating Easter

Mar 27, 2015 9:51:35 AM

Although Spring is offically here nothing kicks off the season like Easter.  Hiding and decorating eggs, pretty dresses and bunnies are a long time tradition.  Tradtition is something that we love and charish.  We see our products being apart of family traditions, with those certain pieces that always make the Easter table each year.  

Bring the feeling of spring to your table with a beautiful centerpiece!  It doesn't always have to be a vase.  Think about using an antique soup tureen or a pitcher.

This Vintage Piece is stunning and now on sale!

When setting the table think about who will be there.  Make it extra special by having napkin rings monogrammed with their name.  These can be used at all your family events.

Peltro Napkin Rings

If you are getting bored with your same set of dishes but don't want to invest in a new set, add a pop of color with new napkins or a tablecloth.  You can also add colorful charger plates.  We have many colors and styles to choose from.

See our Chargers Here!  Blue and Red Chargers are on sale for a limited time!

Whether you are serving coffee, mimosas, appetizers or desserts a beautiful serving tray makes it so special.  Find a tray that is right for you and you will find you use it all the time!  Worth every penny!

Merletto Serving Trays, Tesoro Serving Tray, Peltro Serving Tray, Volterra Serving Tray

Last but not least, everyone loves dessert so why not make it look its best!

AD Home Show 2015

We were excited to be apart of the Architectural Digest Home Show in New York recently. This show is different than the other types of trade show events we participate in because it is directed toward designers and is also open to the public. Exhibitors included everyone from high-end appliances, lighting, and home furnishings.

It was great being amongst these top companies!

Here is our cozy corner spot!

Notice the lamp in the background?  This is a piece from our Ducale Collection we had made into a lamp.

During the show we handed out gifts to those that stopped by the booth.  Each bag contained a brochure and a spoon from our Finezza Collection.

We highlighted our Tuscan Collection at the show as well as key pewter items such as Ducale, Barware, Flatware, and Glassware.

How pretty are our Vintage Pitchers as vases!

During the AD Home Show DIFFA (Design Industry Foundation Fighting Aids) sponsored "Dining by Design" where designers are chosen to create amazing table displays.  A cocktail event is held and you are able to "dine" in these amazing vignettes!  There is also a silent auction and all proceeds go to DIFFA.

We were so honored to have been asked to be apart of the Beacon Hill vignette, designed by Corey Damen Jenkins.

Here is the rendering.

And the Final Design!  Amazing right?!

Our Vetro Gold Collection was selected for the table.

We donated the Vetro Water/Wine glasses for the Silent Auction.  Below is a promo pic from DIFFA on Instagram.  

Be sure to follow us on Instagram as well as DIFFA to see other amazing tables that will inspire and wow you!

Besides the Beacon Hill table, of course, this was another favorite!
